SASKATOON – A high-profile murder trial is expected to start in Saskatoon on Monday.

David Woods, 51, is charged with the first-degree murder of his wife Dorothy Woods.

Her body was found in a culvert near Blackstrap Lake, south of Saskatoon off Highway 11, nearly two months after the 45-year-old mother of two was reported missing.

She was last seen leaving her Riel Crescent home in the early morning hours of Nov. 12, 2011.

Friends described Dorothy Wood as a vivacious member of the community who touched many lives. She was involved in the local roller derby community and ran a daycare from her home.

David Woods has elected to be tried by jury. The trial is expected to last about four weeks.
